Patience

Everyone knows the saying “Patience is a virtue,” but is not patience more of an ability? The virtuous ability to contentedly wait. That is what I say it is. Not only is the ability to wait necessary in cross stitching, but it is quite often necessary in our every day lives as well. It presents itself in greatest form not when we are waiting for an outcome that has already been set. Patiently waiting for something that will take place within hours, days or even weeks actually does not require a person to have as much patience as one might think. That event will take place no matter what you do, therefore there is no reason for you to spend your time waiting, and being patient.

It is, however, when we wait for something that we cannot put on a schedule that patience displays its true power. The ability to await the future, being content in where you are and where you are unknowingly headed. That is true patience, and under its unfathomable umbrella one can live his or her life without worry.
